What are serving sizes?
There are three different serving sizes we cater to with our cakes – small (1” x 1” x height), finger portions (1” x 2” x height) or dessert size (2” x 2” x height). It’s up to you which of these options works best for you! If serving your cake as your dessert we recommend the 2” x 2” servings. If serving with coffee after the meal and dessert, either of the smaller options will work. Depends on your budget, and how much you (and your guests) love cake! Tip* - make sure you let your venue know which serving size you’ve chosen, and how many servings they should get from your cake!
Fondant or buttercream?
The age old question! And this comes down to taste. Fondant is great for more detailed cakes, and keeps your cake fresher for longer, but not everyone loves the texture. Buttercream or ganache are perfect for a sweet rustic finish, but don’t behave as well over Summer months. It’s your wedding cake – choose what you love!
How does the wedding cake reach the venue?
We deliver all our wedding cakes – this is definitely something you want to leave to the pros! A fee applies for cake deliveries outside of Wellington.
Can we hire stands?
We have a range of towers and stands available for hire, or check with your venue – often they will have a wedding grade stand available for your use.
Round or square?
This one comes down to taste and preference! Square cakes are easier for dessert size portions, as all your guests will receive the same size and shape piece. Also good if you have a family member or less experienced person doing the cutting! Otherwise it’s 6 in one, half a dozen in the other.
What do we do about allergies?
It’s common these days to have a variety of allergies among your wedding guests! If you only have a few, we suggest providing allergy free cupcakes for those guests, boxed separately. We do make allergy free cakes, but hesitate to include these in a stack of tiered cakes in case of contamination.
Fruit cake, yes or no?
If you love fruit cake, go for it! Just note it’s one of our most expensive flavours, and can only be the bottom tier of your cake due the weight. Don’t like it yourself but know your Nana will expect it? Have a small fruit cake in the kitchen for serving!
Can we have a different flavour on each tier?
Heck yes, and why wouldn’t you! (although having said that, when serving your cake as your dessert you may want to restrict your flavours so there aren’t any fights!)
